John Gooding | August 2014

A Shallow Tempest mulloway. Most of our mulloway have been caught on pilchards fished on floatlines.

Offshore temps hold on for dear life
David Green | August 2014

Mark Frendin with a classic Gold Coast combination: A flathead taken on a Lively Lures’ Micro Mullet.

This year has seen the water temperatures hold at near summer levels right into July. We have been catching blue marlin all through winter so far and on the inshore grounds there are still a few Spanish mackerel. The snapper have been slow to start and the water has often been 23°C, which is way too warm for snapper to spawn. This month the water should cool down at last and we should see a return to normal winter fishing patterns.

With lots of school mulloway around, ones like this aren’t easy to catch. Remember to release any mulloway under 75cm.

Chilly but clear conditions should be the order of the day throughout August as the westerlies kick in and make for great fishing.

Elise with an elbow banger whiting. The summer whiting are not only around in summer, so get amongst a few.

August is the month where most anglers will say “wow” at some point on the water. “Wow, what a glorious day” or “Wow, that’s a big snapper, mulloway, flathead or whiting”.
